The ac is 5GHz signal. The way the radio waves work is the higher the frequency the lover the range. However, the signal strength is only one factor. With your signal strength on 5GHz network you will still get much higher data throughput, then on the b, g, n (which is on 2.5 GHz WiFi). Unfortunately the 5GHz is also more sensitive to the ...

First, thanks everyone for helping me. I think I've figured it out. Although I don't know why it works. I've added a "5 GHz" network and joined that explicitly. Apparently, it's normally 2.4 GHz. Anyway, my WiFi hasn't slowed down in over 24 hours, so I've got my fingers crossed that it's fixed forever. Why did this fix it? I have no idea. Perhaps my ...

Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver and uncheck the 'Wake for Wi-Fi network access' option This fixed the network-not-connecting-after-sleep issue on my brand new MBP 10.9.4, but I wasn't using an Airport Extreme... so maybe that part of the equation is just coincidence in your case.

This doesn't answer your title, but your question I suppose. Unless you just have the AirPort lying around without any use, a cheaper solution would be to get a USB Wireless Adapter. You can get those for almost a tenth of the price of an Airport.

You don't actually have to turn off Wifi. Here's what I do when my cable modem drops: Settings > Personal Hotspop -> turn to on on my laptop, click the WIFI icon in the tray to open the "Currently Connected to" Dialog. Sometimes at this point I have to use the refresh Icon in the top right of that dialog a few times to get my iPhone's SSID to show up, ...

Apparently not possible to wirelessly bridge an AirPort/TimeCapsule device with another non-Apple wireless router. https://discussions.apple.com/message/26473279 https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5144712?searchText=bridge https://discussions.apple.com/message/10769075#10769075

It's an issue of what device you'll be using, how many of them will be connected simultaneously, if you need to stream music, etc. But based on what you said, here are a few suggestions: In general, if you have a new Mac (mid-2013 or later, for most models), it probably takes advantage of 802.11ac, a spec which only the Extreme supports. However, if you ...

Reviewing more articles, I realized that the AP was not set to Enterprise. Upon turning that on, and setting it up on the AP, the server was receiving the auth requests (and showing that they were authenticating), but not returning them to the AP.

You can extend a wireless network on an Airport Extreme, however it MAY require the old version of Airport Utility to accomplish these steps. What you would do is under "Airport", "Wireless" change "Wireless Mode" from "Create a Wireless Network" to "Extend a Wireless Network". Then under "Internet Connection" set "Connection Sharing" from "Distribute a ...
